Played at Maumee Bay the other day. Course was really in good shape but you better keep it on the fairway. Lots of water and high heather. I shot a 101, which isn’t too terrible for me. 


We’re playing at Wolf Creek tomorrow in Adrian.

Played at Carrington Golf Club up in Monroe, MI on Saturday. Nice course it was just really wet from all the rain overnight.

Playing at Maumee Bay Thursday morning. We will see how that goes.

I know there is a bug that sometimes cuts posts off. Not sure why.

That was weird.

I definitely posted, "I knew I came to the right place for help."

Posted from a computer too, not from mobile device. OC is going to hell....

My youngest brother in law is getting married July 3rd (I know, holiday weekend wedding...how selfish). 

His best man is in the Marines and he's stationed out in San Diego and his leave just got denied to come home. COVID sucks.

Long story short, myself and the groom's brother have now been tasked w/ restructuring the bachelor party.

We are in the Toledo area and are willing to travel to Cleveland, Columbus, Fort Wayne, Auburn Hills/Detroit. That's our radius.

If we stay somewhere for the night, it will just be one night. July 1st into July 2nd. There should be about 6-7 of us going.

The groom is 21, but not a big partier or drinker by any means, so this makes it a little tougher. Everyone else in the group is a good time but we want to respect his wishes and do something he would appreciate and enjoy. We do all like to golf so that will definitely be on the agenda wherever we go.

I've spit balled staying at the Maumee Bay lodge and playing golf there then maybe hitting up downtown Toledo for dinner and a couple bars after. Also thought about maybe going to one of the Topgolf locations (Auburn Hills, Cleveland, Columbus) and staying in one of those cities and then playing a round of golf there.

Any last minute ideas from the OC?

I like the top golf idea for this situation, hit a comfortable bar afterwards

I shot a shitty 96 today.  Took an 8 on hole #1, then followed it up with a birdie (3) on #2.  Finished with a 9 on #18.  Fuck this game.  I hit the ball much better today.  I just suck around the green so damn bad.

If I could stop 3-putting on my usual 5 holes, I'd finally have a legitimate chance to get into the 80's.

Hopefully by late summer/fall I can put a round together.

Where did you golf?

Sugar Creek in Elmore. Course was in decent shape for the most part.

96 on one of our local courses here in NW Ohio. It was my first time ever under 100. It helped that I had an extremely lucky and 'Brady-like' Eagle from about 70 yards out.

I just started golfing last June, but I've got the bug now and have slowly been improving whenever I can get out. Starting to just play it a little safer each shot and not trying to crush every single shot. I still have my moments where I will get my 9 or 10 stroke hole, but doing better at limiting that now to only one per round.

Golf is hard.

Yeah, I’ve seen like this from OHSAA. Not sure where he is getting that from.

OHSAA backtracked on the opening of sports today in regards to using sport implements.....they will allow 2 people to pass a ball together

Wife had a Southern Tier Double Milk Stout. Said she enjoyed it.

I picked up some Findlay Brewing Brilliant Blonde that I'll give a shot tonight.

What’s the odds the Dems get the $2k /month stimulus deal to go through?

Well, all $2400 went to a 529 for our daughter. Wife’s call, not mine....I was hoping for some new golf equipment.

I ordered some mimosas in a can. Could be a game changer for tailgating, pool days, and boat days.

Like the idea but after shipping and even with the 10% off, $40 is a little steep. Would need a sample before buying.

Has anyone who checked the IRS website and got the following message actually received their payment?

I did see on the news that sometimes that error occurs because something isn't matching up. Street name not capitalized or hyphenated, middle initial used instead of full middle name, etc. So I guess make sure that all is correct and matching....

Ummm...we have a 6 day old. First time parents.

 

I guess it’s crying, eating, sleeping, crying, repeat. Fun times. Oh, as I assume you parents already know.... sleep schedule is totally whacked up now.
